In the new "Ask the MD" video, I discuss motor fluctuations, or "off" times -- periods when Parkinson's symptoms return despite medication use. I explain how and why "off" times occur, options for medication management, and a few of the therapies in development to avoid these fluctuations.
I hope you find this and the other "Ask the MD" content useful in managing your Parkinson's. Check the site regularly for blogs and videos about popular topics in Parkinson's research and clinical care.
As always, thanks for being a valued member of our community.
